Pine Beetle Rounds

Started with some really "punky" rounds I slabbed off a coupla logs in my raw materials inventory. Here are the logs:

After slabbing off the rounds:

You can kinda, sorta see the "heartwood" is still good on most of the rounds. Will have to wait and see just how much will need to be ground off each piece in order to salvage anything from them. The hope is to save enough to show the blue stain of the beetles and to be able to flatten one edge on each piece and then join them together to make a very unique table top. We'll see how that one goes.
